Description

The client in MongoDB uses world-readable permissions on .dbshell history files, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by reading these files.

Solution(s)

  • mongodb-upgrade-3_0_15
  • mongodb-upgrade-3_2_14
  • mongodb-upgrade-3_3_14

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
